Speech Privacy & Sound Masking
Extraneous noise impacts productivity and focus in offices. In other settings, such as a healthcare facility, keeping conversations private is more of a concern. Speech privacy and sound masking technology can address both of these issues.
Speech Privacy & Sound Masking
A sound masking system consists of small speakers that emit what is essentially background unnoticeable background noise, as well as a control center that allows for the speakers to be managed by the organization’s internal team.
Connectivity Point can design and install speech privacy and sound masking systems to fit your organization’s unique needs. Whether a modern open office where sound needs to be dampened, or a hospital where conversations that take place need to stay private, we can find the right solution for the space and its function.
